I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry. Check out this link http://www.thegreatnews.com/video/news/wb33news_mdb.html and watch this regional story about Million Dollar bill gospel tracts. I’m amazed that Darrel Rundus would play the “We’re being persecuted by the government” card so quickly. Does he really think that the Secret Service, who seized the Million Doller Bill gospel tracts, is trying to stop the proliferation of the gospel? Isn’t it more likely that these tracts really do violate counterfeiting laws? At what point do the principles of Romans 13:1 come into effect in this situation (“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.”) I don’t doubt that there is soon coming a day when the government will begin to persecute the church with zeal, but I believe this will come in the form of censorship and declaring that churches are not allowed to speak against sins such as homosexuality, abortion and the like.

The Secret Service hasn’t declared the dissemenation of the Gospel unlawful. They are simply asking that this evangelist make sure that one side of the tracts are black and white and that they are not the same size as US currency. Ah, but I forgot, this is a form of persecution. Right.
